Tutorial Tuesday - Sew a Passport Holder

"But personally I think everyone should have a valid passport."
-Deb Pfeifer, Cruising with Confidence: How to be a First Time Cruiser without Looking like One, Second Edition 

I'm not sure why it took us so long to finally get a passport, but I'm glad we did. At this point I couldn't ever imagine going back to not having one. I want to be able to pick up and go anywhere in the world anytime I want. Not that I do that, but I want the option.

So for those who do have a passport - or those who don't (go get one, now!) - here are a couple quick and easy projects for them.

You can now download a PDF version of the patterns, complete with directions and color photos, from my Craftsy library HERE.

In addition to the standard sewing supplies, for the single passport cover you will need:
  • 6” x 11” main fabric
  • 6” x 11” lining fabric
  • 5 ¾” x 10 ¾” fusible fleece 
  • Passport

In addition to the standard sewing supplies, for the family passport wallet you will need:
  • 9 ½” x 10 ½” main fabric
  • 9 ½” x 10 ½” lining fabric
  • 8 ½” x 9 ½” fabric for pockets, cut 3
  • 9 ½” x 10 ½” interfacing, cut 2
  • Button
  • Hair tie or piece of elastic
